school buses have radios...and drivers have strict policies...
I have yet to see anybody ask "what did this female bus driver do after escorting her charges into a strangers house?"
Gene is not quite clear on that point...
Did she stay in his house with the kids for hours while parents came to pick up their children?
Did she leave Gene alone with the kids for hours while parents came to pick them up?
Just because you don't know who the bus driver is [or if she even exists] there are still ways to verify his story[ies]
Being a parent of 4 kids myself..sure I would be ecstatic to show up on his doorstep and find my child alive...but as a parent, in the aftermath, I would be extremely angry that this bus driver WAS ALLOWED BY HER DISPATCHER [he mentions her radio'ing her 'office' in an interview] to leave my kids with a stranger for hours...rather than taking them directly and immediately to the staging area next door.
